Feral Cat Publishers: “Dear Leader Tales”
Deadline July 31 (must be received by this date; don't enter before July 1). Feral Cat Publishers, a small independent press, seeks short stories (1,000-5,000 words) and poetry for an anthology titled Dear Leader Tales, edited by E.E. King. "We want stories of a humorous or satirical bent which illustrate or lampoon an emperor's hubris (and lack of clothing). In that spirit, we don't want any real life current or past Dear Leaders named directly, but their known foibles are fair game. Examples beyond the political include CEOs who constantly quote Sun Tzu or Machiavelli incorrectly, cats plotting to overthrow their human overlords, in short anywhere clueless oppressors operate." Unpublished work is preferred. See website for email submission instructions. This is a paying market.
